The Lake Placid Nordic Festival takes place on March 18, 2017 and includes races for all abilities as well as tons of nordic fun on the Olympic Cross Country ski trails of Mt. Van Hoevenberg. Skiers here have always found trails fit for the Olympian inside them, no matter their ability.
The 3km, 6km and 12km races are designed for those who are new to racing or experienced skiers looking for a community event that is fun. With either the 3km course—slightly challenging, but relatively flat—or the 6km—which includes a couple of short but strenuous uphills—you will be rewarded with camaraderie, pristine conditions and all of the fun parts of a large race.
